We stopped by in late July to have a first look at site prep, then headed back over this week to see the caisson action. And action we got. Very happy to see work started on this site.
Enjoying the photos? Metra and CTA rides (and Amtrak trains to Milwaukee), Zipcars, Divvy Bikes, camera lenses, domain fees, snacks & energy drinks, and comfortable walking shoes add up. You can help offset expenses by making a greatly-appreciated donation to Building Up Chicago.
My quest for suburban tower cranes begins with…….failure. Although I can brag about my first-ever Yellow Line ride.
There aren’t many tower cranes in Chicago, right? So I figure I’ll start heading out to the suburbs for a look. You know, go to them instead of expecting them to come to me. And I’ll start in Skokie, because I know there’s one there. W.E. O’Neil is using that crane to build 8000 North.
Good in theory. But I got there too late. The tower crane has come down. But remember, the loss of a tower crane means progress has been made. So shout-out to the team up in Skokie that’s gotten 8000 North this far:
